help with gaim (and msn protocol)

Hello, I was using Gaim, via the MSN protocol to be on my msn account, and while someone was sending me a file through gaim (msn) all of a sudden i was logged off and since then everytime I try to reconnect it wont let me, it doesnt even start to log on, other than that I downloaded aMSN, to try and see if that program worked, It didnt.

I have rebooted my computer many times, and i have uninstalled, downloaded a new fresh compatible version and reinstalled, it, it still doesnt work, im thinking it has to do with the protocol,

All help is welcome

If this just happened within the last few hours then I'd try again now, I had a few problems earlier but I can reconnect OK now.
